This is so incredibly soft and lovely, Patricia. I love the way you’ve positioned the flower so the lines comes from the ULC and flows through the image. And the soft yellow center is so perfectly executed. Outstanding, thanks for sharing it.

I like the softness with just enough definition for the flowing shapes and the hint of a petal edge that tells the viewer what they’re looking at.

Oooh, gorgeous! I love your interpretation of the weekly challenge. You’ve shown just enough detail to pique our imaginations.

A really great soft flower image with delicate curves and color scheme.

Sublime!! All said above! I’ve searched quite a bit for compositions similar to this in iris, and never come close to anything like this!

Patricia: Elegant and so well presented. Wonderful image. >=))>

Patricia, this is truly elegant and dreamy. I am having mixed feelings about the touch of petal edge, top center.
